Wow! @.@ This is soooo beautiful~ :heart: I think my favorite part of the artwork is the mist from his breath. This is just so amazingly detailed, I don't know how to e'splain it. :3 I love the colors on him, really unique!

Something a little off to me though, is the place the shadow is. The lighting seems it would bring it at a different angle. I don't really see anything else you could improve, this is REALLY amazing! ^^

The cliff part also looks really well done~ You did an excellent job with the backlighting on him, and that night sky is just so alluring. . . :aww:

Keep up the art, don't let anyone tell you otherwise! :meow:

I love it! After I had a look at the neatly-drawn lion my gaze shifted to the trees in the bottom left corner! I love how you added mist to spread in front of some of them. Heheh, I'm faving this. ^_^

The trees, I'm afraid, I can't take credit for. Those were the product of a very well-made photoshop brush. But thank you for your kind comment. :]

I looked this up based on Orca Owls recommendation, and Wow, I'm impressed.
The breezed-ruffled fur, ears and condensed breath creates a soft motion, perfect for pre-sunrise quiet. The large expanse of blue sky going to black creates depth which draws the eye in, following the lion's gaze. The flat coloring of the lion give the character a out-of-scene effect, as though he moves on a different plane than the surroundings, which do have some shadowing.
Magical!
